Camera Bay

Camera Bay

Situated on the north western section of Racha Noi, Camera Bay provides a diverse diving experience. The bay itself is free of currents and is suitable for all levels of divers

The bay provides an array of hard corals and is bound by the rocky edges of the island itself and often the dive exits the bay and follows the north western edge of the island towards the north.

The inner bay is often a gentle dive viod of currents and surge. I can be used for beginner divers however there are very little flat sand bottoms and the edge drops away to 12 metres rather quickly from the edge of the island.

This bay has been a regular provider of the ever popular Anglerfish (Frogfish) which can be found hiding in the yellow finger coral.

Manta Rays are no strangers to this part of the bay but more commonly found on the northern outer tip of the bay.

Dive boats go to Racha Noi every day of the week as a part of a 3-dive combo with Racha Yai.

All scuba diving dive sites are at the discretion of the tour leader on the day. Dive sites are selected based on the weather conditions, currents, safety and suitability to majority of divers on the boat. We cannot guarantee specific dive sites prior to the boat departing.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloa [...]

What is the Underwater Visibility Like in Phuket?

A question that we often get asked here is “Is the visibility good?” Good visibility and bad visibility is a subjective thing and people when commenting should be giving an example of what level of visibility they are comparing it too or with. For example, a diver that regularly dives in lake or quarries and they compare to that, may think the visibility is good. Those that regularly dive in deep waters may think that that the visibility is poor. We regularly have divers from both spectrums and then can arrive back from the same dive trip and one saying the visibility is good and the other saying it is not good. There are a [...]

Do I Need to do a Scuba Diving Refresher?

PADI recommends when during their theory section of the PADI Open Water Course that you should do a refresher if you have not been diving for six months. This is for a very good reason, it involves your safety. Is this applicable to all cases? The requirement or need to do a refresher should not purely be based on time alone. The ability and confidence of the diver involved should also be taken into account. For example, a student who has only done the four dives of the PADI Open Water Course, was quite nervous during their course should look at doing a refresher. A divemaster with several hundreds or even thousands of dives [...]
